Today I had the great pleasure of a guided tour around New Hythe gravel pits, courtesy of Phil Sharp (Sharp by Nature blogger, and thoroughly decent bloke). It was a lovely day with a much less ferocious north-easterly wind than of late, and we had a fantastic walk around the lakes and extensive marshy and scrubby areas in between. I'm afraid I lost track of which lake was which and where we were somewhat, so apologies for any locational vagueness.
We'd been out for about five hours, but it felt like half that. This is a lovely area, with a much wider and wilder 'feel' than I'd anticipated after looking at it on maps. Thanks, Phil, for a great morning/afternoon, and I'm sure I'll be back before too long!
